Walmart is now fighting hunger. What do you think of this triple bottom line corporate approach?
Walmart just started running advertisements that one out of six children are struggling with hunger. What are your thoughts on this new humanitarian initiative? This is not something new, they rolled it out in December 2010.
Does your community have a local food bank? Have you been involved in some way? Do you see this as a grass roots initiative?
Why would anyone not approve of Walmart's actions? They fear big corporations? Yet those who fear big corporations are comfortable with big government? If the private sector can make things happen and decrease government involvement, good. In reality, big government is probably more responsible for hungry children than the private sector. Besides, going to bed hungry and going to be without eating are two different situations. We are still blessed here in America, regardless of certain propaganda wars.
I worked at a non profit that feeds the hungry and while I applaud Wal-Mart's efforts, I also understand that there are at least a few Wal-Mart employees who aren't paid enough to keep a roof over their heads AND food on the table. Just an observation from the trenches.
